Support Waverley by making a donation
Maintaining a historic steamship in seagoing condition is costly and requires support from many individuals and organisations. During the recent winter refit over £450,000 has been spent directly on Waverley to carry out maintenance and refurbishment work.
If you are able to support our work and donate to help us afford the ongoing maintenance costs we would be very grateful. All donations small or large will be most welcome, if you can Gift Aid your donation this will add 25p to every £1 donated. Donations can be made online today or by calling our office on 0141 243 2224.
We have an Amazon Wish List where you can purchase items we need, click the link to view our list.
Tickets can now be booked for all sailings up to August 28. Book online or call 0141 243 2224.
This season we are anticipating the daily cost of fuel will increase by over £2,000 with a current fuel cost of over £11 per minute. We have therefore reluctantly introduced a small fuel surcharge of £2 or £3 on Adult and Senior tickets. The surcharge will help towards meeting this increased cost. We will monitor the cost of fuel and adjust the fuel surcharge accordingly.
Bookings for other areas beyond August 28 will open after the timetables are released.Book Now
